Students who withdraw or have a net reduction of credit hours below full-time status will be eligible for a refund of tuition as follows:
- 100% Before the first date in term that classes are offered (start of term)
- 100% First day of class through add/drop period
- 0% After end of add/drop period
Important: Students who remain in class after the end of the add/drop period will be responsible for paying 100% of tuition and fees.

Refund Policy for Financial Aid Recipients
The OCtech Financial Aid Office will recalculate federal financial aid based on the percentage of earned aid for students who withdraw, drop out, are dismissed, or take a leave of absence prior to completing 60% of a semester. If a student owes a balance to the College, he/she will be notified by the OCtech Financial Aid Office. A copy of the official recalculation policy is available in the OCtech Financial Aid Office.

NO REFUNDS WILL BE GRANTED TO STUDENTS AFTER THIS DEADLINE.
